  • Preservice teachers, ages 19 & 20, were asked: “What Technology Tools and Resources would you like in your future classroom?”
  • What I learned in Education Technology in 1996
  • A Vision of 21st Century Students
  • 8 years ago…We thought we succeeded with technology integration in schools.
    K–12 schools, state and federal governments have spent around $6.9 billion on computer hardware, Internet access, wiring, software, servers, and other digital equipment to make today’s technology available to students and teachers
    100% of Schools wired for Internet access by 2003
    Kleiman, G.M. (2000). Myths and Realities about Technology in K-12 Schools.
    Leadership and the New Technologies. Retrieved April 7, 2004, from http://www2.edc.org/LNT/news/Issue14/featurecontents.htm
  • Findings: Access to educational software and hardware did not lead to widespread use in classroom learning.
    Cuban, L., Kirkpatrick, H., and Peck, C. (2001). High Access and Low Use of Technologies in High School Classrooms:
    Explaining an Apparent Paradox.American Educational Research Journal, 38(4), 813-834.
  • What is the Problem????
    If there is so much access to technology in schools, why is it underused?
  • Solution: Keep spending…
    End of 2008 Education Technology Spending will reach 47.7 billion dollars.
    Fall 2008, the Federal Budget for one year of Education Technology will be $272 million
  • 8 years later…
    “Still a digital disconnect”
    • Between amount of technology in schools and how it is used.
    • Technology available in schools is still underused
    • Between students and adults
    • Between school technology and student’s everyday technology use.
    Speak Up 2007 Report. Retrieved: http://www.tomorrow.org/speakup/speakup_your_data.html
  • WHY??????
    In 1986 & again in 2001, Larry Cuban Found:
    “Technology traditionally infused from top-down”

  • Why cell phones should NOT be integrated in learning.
    Cheating is a problem…
    • 26% of teenagers admitted to using their cell phone to store information to look at during a test or a quiz.
    • 25% have text messaged their friends about answers during a test or quiz.
    • 20% have searched the Internet via their mobile phone during a test or quiz.
    • 17% have taken pictures of a test or quiz with the cell phone in order to send the pictures to their friends.
    Common Sense Media 09
  • Even MORE of a problem
    Most students do not envision these activities as cheating.
    More than half of the students surveyed did not think these acts were serious offenses of cheating, rather they think of it as just “helping out a friend.”
    Common Sense Media 09
  • 70% of U.S. schools completely ban cell phones from campus
    63% of students admitted to sneaking in cell phones and using them during class anyway.
    In a seven class a day, five day school week, the average student sends at least three text messages per class.

  • Life Consequences
    A 14-year-old Wisconsin girl who refused to stop texting during a high school math class was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.
    Six teens face child porn (13 to 15) charges after being caught "sexting" each other. Criminal Charge!
  • Current Banning and Structures are NOT working
    Students still “cheating”, “Off-task”, or “inappropriately” using cell phones in schools
    Students still bring them to schools and use them when told not to.
    Students still do not understand consequences of their use
    Students have no idea how to use them in future job force!
  • How do we change?
  • 2007: Middle School Principal’s Journey
    “Last year the school ran out of calculators needed for a math exam, So I let a student use the calculator function on his cell phone. The student was excited
    to use a phone instead of a calculator. I found 19 of my 22 students had phones.”
    -Kipp Rogers, Principal at Passages Middle School in Virginia
  • Student Statistics (850 6th-9th grade students)
    • 70-80% of students own a cell phone.
    • 100% of those students can send a text message
    • 90-95% can take and send a picture from their cell phone.
    • 80% have Bluetooth or GPS options on their cell phone.
    • 20-30% of the students with cell phones have access to mobile Internet.
  • Mary Passage Middle School Cell Phone Policy
    1. Students will talk on their cell phone only to complete assignments that are related to the instructional lesson.
    2. Students will keep cell phones turned off or left in lockers when they are not being used for instructional purposes in class.
    3. Students will only send text- messages, pictures or video- messages to others outside of the classroom with permission and directions from the teacher.
    4. Students will not record still or moving images or voices of students or the teacher without permission from the teacher.
    5. Students will not post recordings of still or moving images or voice recordings of students or the teacher to online websites without their permission.
    6. Students will practice internet safety with online resources.
    7. Students will post only appropriate text, audio and visual media to on-line websites.
    I _____________________ understand that violation of our class acceptable cell phone use policy may result in my not being able to participate in additional class activities that involve using the cell phone. I also understand that I may receive disciplinary consequences for violating school board policies regarding cyber-bullying.
    I _______________________ have gone over the Cell Phones in Class Acceptable Use Policy with my child and agree to allow my child to participate.
  • Addressing: Safety & Access
    Dr. Kipp Rogers Says…
    "For the most part, the kids respect the rules. I never had any problems with kids using them inappropriately in my class. We spent a lot of time talking about their digital footprint and that what they do can be tracked."
    He said he initially worried about "the haves and have nots," but students work in teams for most assignments requiring cell phones, so there is always at least one phone among the group.
  • First Project
    How to use Google to find information with their phones. (GOOGLE (466453).
    Using key words, students can look up definitions, download weather, get directions, search for information about a location or object, translate a word or phrase into Spanish or French or receive the latest sports scores for their favorite teams.
  • iReporting
    Students also use their phones to take photos and assemble reports and story projects on Blogger.com
    Some classes have blogs developed by the students with uploaded text, photos and audio clips.
    Most of the programs he and the other teachers use are free.
  • Reviewing
    “Students sat in small groups in the classroom, staring intently at a projected image at the front of the class. A question popped onto the screen. I gave the students a six-digit number and said, ‘Go.’ Instantly thumbs began dancing over cell phone keypads. Within seconds, phones trilled the signal that a text message had been sent. At the same time, answers began dropping into view on the screen, one answer for each group of students, identified by a student's cell phone screen name.” – Tony Neeley, Science Teacher
    In less than an hour, the students worked their way through more than 70 questions for a semester exam review, with every eighth-grader participating!
  • Student’s Reaction
    Sixth-grader Cassie Garn said her English teacher uses cell phones for several exercises.
    "This is more interesting and people pay attention," she said. "It's fun. It beats writing stuff down and everybody likes to try to be first."
    “My teacher roams the room to make sure students are sending answers and not texts to friends.”
    "It's all related to work," Garn said. "We're not texting other people."
  • Teacher’s Reactions
    Teachers said participation is up and discipline problems are down in classes using cell phones.
    Rogers is looking for ways to expand the phones' uses. "It's fighting a losing battle to ask them to leave them at home.”

  • 5 Rules for Cell Phones in Schools
    Set rules based on business regulations for cell phone use (look at business contracts)

    Your digital dossier that includes Internet activity such as social networking, email, chat rooms,
